We do.

We use a toaster, I'm surprised to read the number of people who don't.

The same way I have had the opportunity to use Vitamix blenders, Robot Coupe food processors, or any other manner of high end equipment; knowing or being employed by people who do own them.

Really not that complicated.

From what I have seen, instead of an air fryer, we have a table top convection oven, and that does what an air fryer does very well. It gets hot, and blows air over the food you are cooking, just as an air fryer is reported to do..

The last toaster I had made junky toast. It came out too dark or too light. Then I remembered with fondness the toast my grandmother made in the broiler of her Chambers stove. I bought a toaster oven. I now butter bread, put it in the oven, and turn on the toast function. Pretty soon I have toast like I remember.

Same concept. I have a Nuwave Oven also, and it achieves similar results with meats. Certain things, like fries, work better in the air fryer though, and I'm guessing it's something to do with the shape allowing the air to circulate a certain way.

Good to know: I am still wondering, after I have already turned in my Christmas List if I should have just asked for a larger air fryer. Regardless, whatever I get I will love, I hope anyway.

I'd guess it's also the size, with the heating elements much closer to the food. My regular range has a convection oven, but my counter top toaster/convection oven works far better. Mine is fairly large (can hold a 13 inch pizza pan or 6 slices of toast) and it looks like most of the air fryers have a smaller cooking area than that.

I love ours, we have had one for years, bought several as gifts (that everyone has loved) and just bought a new one from Wal-Mart on Black Friday that we have yet to try out yet, with the rotisserie.

I made a pork loin in it not too long ago, it was fantastic.

We cook a lot of our meat in ours: in fact tonight i will use ours for Salmon. Our daughter doesn't use hers nearly as much as they love to grill, but when she uses it, she too loves it.
